Lavazza A Modo Mio Favola & Milk Coffee Machine by AEG
Had this for almost a year and it's a great coffee machine - reliable and easy to use. Ordering pods is straight forward and the range of flavours excellent. Coffee has depth and tastes authentic. Highly recommend the Lavazza!

Great coffee, poor quality machine
This is the 2nd 'a modo mio' machine i have had by two different manufacturers. Both have made fantastic coffee, but both have also started to leak water around the coffee capsule into the drip tray, resulting in 10% of coffee into the cup, the remainder into the drip tray.
Whilst this machine makes some of the best tasting coffee available, I cannot recommend on the basis of poor design. Do not buy!

Excellent coffe shame about the overflowing drip tank
Bought this coffee machine December 2013 for a Xmas present but ended up keping it ourselves, didn't start using it til Feb 2014.
We love the flavour of the coffee, which we buy online via the JL website. However, even with prewarmed cups the coffee is on the cool side.
The instructions also say that the tank can hold 12 used pods, but the drip tank was filling up with water after half that. The frother stopped working in October so it went back for a warranty repair for that and what we thought was a water leak. Came back with the frother fixed but now drip tray is full with water after only 4 pods - really annoying.
Have now spoken with JL technical services and AEG to find out if this was normal, which according to an unhelpful AEG technical advisor it is!. We are not satisfied as it is getting worse so will be taking it back to JL for another repair after Xmas (don't want to risk being without it over Xmas). We are very disapointed that a great cup of coffee is marred by an annoying "design flaw" and therefore would not recommend.

I was slightly concerned going from ground coffee machine to pods. Put very much at ease by Tom from Exeter store who demonstrated this machine to me more than once I might add. He even made hot chocolate for my grandson GREAT SERVICE. Very pleased good choice of coffee always piping hot and milk is always frothy, Now fully converted to pods > Only problem is which coffee to choose to many nice ones

Bought this coffee machine at Exeter John Lewis on 4 October 2014 and picked it up at our local Waitrose the next day. Tom, the Lavazza demonstrator, who showed us the machine, really knows his stuff and was very easy to talk to. The product is excellent. We have tried some of the recipes that Tom gave us with good results and enjoyed several cups of coffee from the extensive number of pods that he gave us. All in all a very worthwhile shopping trip.

AEG coffee maker
I bought this in the Southampton store on the expert advise and demonstration from Maria. I have never enjoyed coffee so much (and so often!) thank you AEG for the machine and a big thank you to Maria who introduced us to each other.

The Perfect, Versatile Coffee Machine
I wish I'd found this machine years ago. After searching for a Lavazzo capsule coffee maker, I happened to discover all the praise from other reviewers. So true. To be able to make hot chocolate by dropping in cocoa/choc sections and even iced coffee in summer, all via the Latte Macchiato button covers everything I need in one machine!
Well done AEG and Lavazza.

Excellent Machine Great Coffee
At last a Espresso machine that is so easy to use and easy to clean. The milk foam is the best I have had and the Lavazza Coffee is the best. Highly Recommend.
